This is a laboratory based course held at the Grady Early Forensic Anthropology Laboratory using the Texas State Donated Skeletal Collection. The course is designed for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals interested in expanding their knowledge of forensic anthropological methods for developing a biological profile, establishing positive identification, and interpreting bone trauma. Topics include human versus non-human osteology, skeletal inventory, estimation of biological characteristics (age, sex, ancestry, stature), identification methods, and trauma interpretation. Participants will gain hands on training by examining human remains during the course.
Previous knowledge of human skeletal anatomy is required.
Upcoming dates for the course are:
June 11-15, 2018
TCOLE and ABMDI credits available.
